New member... and happy Trophy owner
« on: January 21, 2013, 01:02:26 PM »
Hi all,

After riding a CBF600S for four years (often with my wife) I was looking for a "real" tourer, with more torque, comfort and protection (lot of motorway use). After test-riding the FJR, R1200RT and K1600GT, my preference finally went to the new Trophy.

I took delivery of my blue SE mid-December. About 1000km so far and everything is just great! (Except maybe all this snow we have had in Belgium for a few days...)

Welcome,

I picked my Trophy up on 7th Jan and have only managed 100 miles before the white stuff came down!!!! :003:

Still looking forward to the spring to enjoy. :002: And we have a Black Forest tour in the summer :152:

It's a tourer but handles like a sports tourer when needed.

Salut Ced,

Heureux de rencontrer un voisin possédant une Trophy. Quel dealer as-tu choisi ? N'hésite pas si tu as des questions et j'espère pouvoir te rencontrer un jour pour échanger nos impressions !

Salut mae,

Merci pour ton message ! La mienne vient de chez Waterloo Bikes, le concessionnaire de Gerpinnes ayant arrêté Triumph quelques semaines avant. J'ai été scié par leur service : la moto avait un petit souci avec la bulle lors de la livraison. Le patron a travaillé sur la machine jusqu'à 23h pour remplacer la pièce !

Où as-tu trouvé la tienne ?

Au plaisir de te rencontrer sur nos routes.  :158:

Hi mae,

Thanks for you reply! Mine is coming from Waterloo Bikes, the Gerpinnes dealer having closed its Triumph activities a few weeks before. Their service is just excellent: the bike had some troubles with the windscreen at delivery time. The guy worked on it until 11 pm to replace the part!

Where does yours come from?

Looking forward to meet you.  :158:

Hey guys, this is great - a forum where I can read about Triumph's Trophy and practice my French at the same time ! I won't embarrass myself by trying to write in French (my last schoolboy French lesson was almost 50 years ago), but keep up the good work !
